Video- The Penalty Kill And Tying Goal

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

The Detroit Red Wings on many nights won’t be as talented as the team they are skating against. They need commitment and sacrifice to be the equalizer in those games.

“Ultimately, we want to be a team that sacrifices more than the other group,” Blashill said. “I think you build confidence and a belief you’re going to win if you believe you’ve sacrificed more than other people, whether that be your commitment level in practice, sacrifice during games. I think we’ve had good examples of that.”...

“I think it’s a little bit telling of our team, the amount of sacrifice you saw on that shift,” Blashill said. “Certainly, that’s not the exact way we want to play D-zone. When you have a big block and a guy’s down, all of a sudden you get a little frantic. And then another guy’s down and you get even more frantic. It was chaotic, but I also think, as you could tell from the crowd’s response, that was pretty awesome what those guys did, the way they laid it on the line.

“Erne was hurt on the first block, and he stayed in there and blocked another one. It talks about the sacrifice. It’s a good example of what our team’s been about. We want to sacrifice more than other teams to win hockey games, and that’s what we’re going to have to do in order to be successful.”

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
